Webinar: Carbon Disclosure and the Cost of Debt - in partnership with the European Centre for Corporate Engagement

In this Webinar SSEE Research Fellow Michael Viehs and ECCE Researcher Stefanie Kleimeier will present their latest research on the effect of CO2 emission disclosure on corporations costs of debt. Using a unique and comprehensive database on carbon emissions from CDP (formerly The Carbon Disclosure Project), they study whether companies which voluntarily participate in the CDP disclosure framework enjoy more favorable lending conditions in the form of lower spreads on their bank loans than their non-participating counterparts. In this webinar, the authors will also discuss the important implications for corporate borrowers, lenders, and financial markets that arise out of their research.
